Penstemon Hidcote Pink

Penstemon Hidcote Pink puts on a great Spring show of pink flowers with pale throats and red markings. Penstemon Hidcote Pink likes great soil, full sun, and regular water to look its best. Plants grow two feet tall and 3 feet or so across. Penstemon Hidcote Pink performs well with regular dead flower removal. Penstemon Hidcote Pink will take temperatures down to 10° F. I have sometimes had trouble with mites and have cut off the affected portions down to where the new leaves are showing lower on the stem to fairly good success. Penstemon Hidcote Pink is a potential larval food source for the Variable Checkerspot and Common Buckeye Butterfly and could be a nice addition to your butterfly garden.
